Quick & Easy Diet Tipsposted @12:00pm ET on May 3, 2012
food than you actually need in one sitting. So pump the brakes, folks! Really take the time to thoroughly chew and taste the flavors in your foods. Make a point to swallow what you're chewing before you load your fork with the next bite. You may find that you eat less because you're eating slowly enough to realize when you're already full! Talk about a simple diet tip!
3. Drink water. This one is also ultra-easy but too many of us neglect it! Your body NEEDS water - this isn't optional! Believe me, it needs water more than it needs sugary juices or soda or any other calorie-loaded beverage that you may be craving. Water is vital to pretty much every function of your body, and making sure that you're properly hydrated will make you feel healthier, help you get great skin, keep you feeling satisfied (many of us mistake thirst for hunger!), and help your body achieve and maintain a healthy weight. So drink up - right now!
4. Increase protein. Building healthy muscles will help you to boost your overall metabolism, thus helping you burn more calories when you're at rest. Protein is really important for that muscle-building process! Now, don't get scared. Many dieters (females in particular) hear "muscle-building" and think of a bodybuilder. Get past this old notion! I promise that I'm not talking about "bulking up" - I'm talking about lean, tight, toned muscles...The kind that make you feel super sexy and confident! And if you're skimping on your protein intake, building those toned muscles is going to be much harder. Here are some more expert blogs about why you ought to eat more protein:
